Ion Fury Frags its Way May 14th Onto Nintendo Switch!

DALLAS, TX – April 28, 2020 – Ion Fury, the old-school first-person shooter developed by Voidpoint and published by 3D Realms and 1C Entertainment, arrives on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One May 14. A physical edition will be available worldwide on June 26.

Make way for Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison as she takes down the cyber-cultist army of the sadistic Dr. Jadus Heskel, this time on consoles. Defend Neo D.C. with Shelly’s trusty triple-barreled Loverboy revolver at 60 frames per second on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and take the destruction on the road with the Nintendo Switch.

Tear through cyborg infantry, giant robots and even wendigos with eight retro-inspired weapons. Dual-wield Penetrator SMGs with incendiary ammunition to scorch foes, wreak havoc with the Disperser with either shotgun shells or swap in grenade rounds, or chuck a Clusterpuck into a room and delete everyone.

Utilizing the same Build engine behind the original Duke Nukem 3D, Ion Fury offers the beloved feel of ‘90s shooters. Seamlessly integrated modern features include headshots, environmental interaction, improved physics, auto-saves, and widescreen functionality. Ion Fury’s marriage of both styles provides both a genuine introduction to classic FPS games and a worthy addition to the genre as a whole, as evidenced by winning IndieDB’s game of the year award.

“We wanted to make sure the gory fun from the PC version felt just as great on consoles,” said Mike Nielsen, CEO of 3D Realms. “We never thought we would see the day where we could use the Build engine on modern consoles, but we think our players will enjoy the efforts of Voidpoint and General Arcade’s fantastic work.”

Ion Fury will be available for pre-order on Xbox One on May 1 at a 15% discount, taking the price down to $21.24 / €21,24 / £16,99, and on Nintendo Switch across Europe on May 7 with a 15% discount. It will be available on Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One in English, French, German, Russian, and Spanish on May 14. Ion Fury will also be available via physical release through www.ionfury.com worldwide, and retail in Europe and Australia on Nintendo Switch for €29,99/£24,99 and PlayStation 4 for €24,99/£19,99 on June 26.

The game is currently available for PC on Steam, GOG, and the 3D Realms website for $24.99 USD.

Survival Horror Epic “The Persistence” Digital Release Begins May 21st on Nintendo Switch!

Liverpool, UK – Thursday, 23rd April 2020 – Inventive independent developer Firesprite Games is excited to reveal that critically acclaimed sci-fi horror experience The Persistence will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on Thursday, May 21st, 2020.

Having made waves on PSVR in 2018, The Persistence offers players an intentionally savage take on survival-horror that integrates an innovative rogue-like design into the genre, with its release on console and PC marking the first time it’s hit the 4K flat screen and Firesprite’s debut on both Nintendo and Microsoft platforms.

“When we made the move to bring The Persistence to new platforms, our key focus was to ensure that the particularly brutal nature of gameplay made the leap to non-VR,”  says Graeme Ankers, MD and founder of Firesprite Games. “As a result, The Persistence keeps players on edge from beginning to end, and with a procedurally generated environment forming around them, no two playthroughs are ever identical, meaning you will never find safety in the same spot.”

Set in the year 2521, The Persistence charges players with surviving on board a doomed deep space colony starship overrun with horrific and murderous mutants. Play sees them fighting their way through the depths of an ever-changing labyrinth to bring the ship back to Earth, with this new version heightening the tension thanks to enhanced environments and post-processing effects.

As part of the new release, Firesprite Games is also pleased to confirm that gamers who already own the PlayStation®VR version will also receive these features via an update on PlayStation®4 for no extra cost.

In addition, players who pre-purchase The Persistence on Nintendo Switch (between Thursday, April 23rd and Wednesday, May 20th) and Xbox One (between Thursday, April 30th and Wednesday, May 20th) will receive a 10 percent discount.

Games Publisher Perp Games will publish physical editions across retail on the three console platforms. The release will be as near as possible to the digital release taking into account the effect of COVID 19 on global retail.

The Persistence features:

  • A brutal take on the survival-horror genre that integrates rogue-like design elements to give the action an extra edge

  • Procedurally generated stages that change with each playthrough, creating a labyrinth-like experience that adds to the tension

  • Live, die, repeat. Play as dozens of different clones on board the ship, each one with the potential to be stronger than the last

  • Tailored controls. enhanced environments and post-processing effects for PC, PS4 and Xbox One deliver a heightened fidelity of horror for fans of the genre

  • Atmospheric, cutting-edge visuals in docked, handheld or tabletop modes for the Nintendo Switch platform

The Persistence will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on Thursday, May 21st, 2020 for £24.99/$29.99/€29.99. Those who pre-order on Nintendo Switch (between Thursday, April 23rd and Wednesday, May 20th) and Xbox One (between Thursday, April 30th and Wednesday, May 20th) will receive a 10 percent discount.
